Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a complication that develops in up to 50% of patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and manifests as symptoms and signs of chronic venous insufficiency of varying severity. PTS negatively affects patient's quality of life and causes significant burden to the healthcare system. The risk for PTS development can be markedly reduced by preventing DVT and providing appropriate anticoagulation once it develops. Patients with extensive proximal (iliofemoral) DVT may benefit from invasive interventions, such as catheter-directed thrombolysis...

INTRODUCTION: Decompression sickness (DCS) is a complex and poorly understood systemic disease caused by inadequate desaturation following a decrease of ambient pressure. Strong variability between individuals is observed for DCS occurrence. This raises questions concerning factors that may be involved in the inter-individual variability of DCS occurrence. This study aimed to experimentally assess the existence of heritable factors involved in DCS occurrence by selectively breeding individuals resistant to DCS from a population stock of wistar rats...

BACKGROUND We reported a strategy of thrombophilia testing-guided venous thromboembolic events (VTE) prophylaxis for living donors of liver transplantation in 2011. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this protocol for VTE prophylaxis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thrombophilia testing, including protein S (PS), protein C (PC), antithrombin (AT) III, and anti-phospholipid antibody (APLA), was performed in 306 living donor candidates between July 2005 and June 2016. Donors who met any of the criteria of PS <60%, PC <64%, AT-III <70%, and positive APLA were classified into the borderline group and received continuous venous infusion of heparin immediately after surgery, in addition to use of elastic stockings and intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) until patients were ambulatory...

INTRODUCTION: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common in edematous states, notably in hemodialysis patients. In this population, overnight fluid shift can play an important role on the pathogenesis of OSA. The effect of compression stockings (CS) and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on fluid shift is barely known. We compared the effects of CS and CPAP on fluid dynamics in a sample of patients with OSA in hemodialysis, through a randomized crossover study. METHODS: Each participant performed polysomnography (PSG) at baseline, during CPAP titration, and after 1 week of wearing CS...

BACKGROUND: We evaluated the clinical and radiographic outcomes, including femoral head penetration, of total hip arthroplasty performed using a specific polyethylene (PE) liner in small Asian patients at 10 years after the index surgery. In addition, we investigated whether femoral head penetration was affected by patient-related, implant-related, and surgical factors. METHODS: Between August 2002 and June 2005, for cementless primary total hip arthroplasty, we used acetabular PE liners that were manufactured from GUR 1050 resin, machined from isostatic compression-molded bar stock, and sterilized with a gamma ray irradiation in argon gas...
